BMW Announces World Superbike Entry for 2009

BMW has announced it will be participating in the 2009 World Superbike Championship. The new team will be formed during the 2008 season under the direction of BMW's head of motorsports Berti Hauser. BMW's brand new 1000cc inline four cylinder engine will be tested under racing conditions and further developed and improved based on the data gained in these tests. Partner in this project is the company alpha Technik GmbH in Stephanskirchen near Rosenheim/Germany.

Peter Müller, BMW's head of motorcycle development, says that the company is well aware that they are engaging in competition with manufacturers that have a considerable advantage on BMW because of their long experience in this sport. Although he does not expect BMW's new Superbike project to be a walk in the park he is confident that in cooperation with alpha Technik, and utilizing their decade-long experience in Superbike racing, BMW will be able to compete suceessfully with the strong international teams of other brands.

Now does that mean we will see a true Beemer Superbike for the streets???
